Placental Abruption

Statistics of Placental Abruption

Placental abruption occurs in roughly one out of every 100 births, and while the cause is not known—except for cases of trauma to the uterus, such as a car accident—it is commonly associated with hypertension, maternal cigarette smoking and alcohol use, sickle cell anemia, a multiple pregnancy and previous pregnancies with placental abruption.
